Apple Well, this will come as no surprise to OSNews readers, but as outlined in a recent BBC documentary, UK neuroscientists have studied brain scans of hard-core Apple fans and have found that their mental reactions to Apple imagery are quite similar to scans of religious devotees' brains when shown images of their iconography. The DigitalTrends article summarizing the finding singles out Apple users, but I think we all know that, RDF aside, this is not an Apple-only phenomenon.

Honestly, I don't know what's worse... Apple or Android fanboys. One would think Fandroids are a little more informed, but when Netflix for Android comes out supporting like six phones (including the Droid Incredible, but NOT the Incredible 2) and they still insist that fragmentation on Android doesn't exist/isn't a problem, you have to wonder what Kool-Aid they've been drinking.

Note: I like Android and have a Droid Incredible myself, but even the most enthusiastic supporters of a platform need to be realistic about its problems. For example, iOS REALLY needs a better notification system and the option to be untethered from iTunes.
